The mission of the Literacy Council of St. Petersburg is to provide free tutoring for adults who want to improve their literacy skills.
Did you know that one in 10 adults in Pinellas County cannot read well enough to perform the every day tasks many of us take for granted? Tasks such as reading to a child, filling out a job application, or understanding medical information on a prescription bottle?
The Literacy Council of St. Petersburg believes in teaching everyone to read and changing lives forever.
From adult basic education to studying for the GED, we pair adult learners with volunteer literacy tutors
for free, one-on-one tutoring.
Founded in 1968, the Literacy Council of St. Petersburg is a non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to helping adults in our community through innovative learning programs and one-on-one instruction.
